After the massive news of Intel Extreme Masters (IEM) headlining the upcoming Melbourne Esports Open 2020, ESL and promoters TEG Live have confirmed that the League of Legends Oceanic Pro League (OPL) Finals will be joining IEM for the massive esports weekend line-up in August. It was pretty much expected League of Legends will make a return however a new title was added part of today’s announcement.
Warcraft III: Reforged which is part of the ESL Pro Tour will also be featured at the Melbourne Esports Open 2020. Taking place on the 2nd dedicated stage within Margaret Court Arena, Warcraft III: Reforged will see international players compete in Melbourne. This was an unexpected announcement and to be honest, we actually never knew there was an ESL Pro Tour for Warcraft III: Reforged. Last year, Melbourne Esports Open featured StarCraft 2 which was honestly an amazing sight to see. We’re keen to sus out some WarCraft esports action.
Keen to see what other titles get added to the line-up of an action-packed weekend. *Cough Rainbow Six Siege cough.*
